Dear Bhanu

I don't know where you got the idea that there was a tool to download for there are none.

Here is what to do in detail to remove the write protection:

1. Open Start Menu
2. Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
3. Navigate to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

4. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 In the Value Data Box and press OK button

5.Exit Registry

6. Restart your computer and re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer.

Now, please tell me if you have succeeded.

Regards
here after ControleSet\Controle , there is nothing such as Storage Device Policies.........???????????
